My designs are influenced from a lifetime spent in and around the sea. It calms and orientates me, giving me a sense of balance and tranquillity. The emotional response transmits through to my designs and influences what I make.
I aim for a fusion of strong design, innovative style and spontaneity in all that I make. I love to look at a piece and be transported back to a memory or imagine a breaking wave, a rock-pool or a beach.
I enjoy working with powdered glass as it feels much like handling sand. Working in this way has resulted in me having an easily recognisable style unique to myself.
